Aspiring fashion designers, you must attend Tucson Fashion Week.

I attended the October show that featured some local designers. The fashion show was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art Downton. There was a backdrop with sponsors on it just like the red carpet you see on TV.

I spoke with Quinlan Wilhite of QMulative. He said his grandmother showed him how to sew. He began his fashion design career at the age of 24.

Dorota Zglobicka of Thoe Dora Fairyland is from Poland. She now lives in Vail, Arizona, where her design house is headquartered. Her designs are vintage inspired, very ladylike and dainty.

Cry Baby Couture and Shahida Parides also showed their collections.
